Just wondering if anyone has used cake pans from cakedeco & if so if they are their brand or another brand? Are they good quality? What are they comparable to?
Another ? is about the Coast Tier separator system---is is like the SPS?
And if you've bought anything else you are or aren't satisfied with please let me know.
Pfeil & Holing pans are stamped "Pfeil & Holing". They are good pans. Mine are mixed in with my sets of Magic Line, and have never notice a difference in the quality or how the cakes bake up.
I also have the Coast system. They are like SPS, except they don't have the little nub in the center the hold the cake board in place. I do love the fact that the pillars come in 1/4" increments, because not all cakes are always a perfect 4". I use their pillars instead of dowels on cakes that I'm using just a board and no plate. NO CUTTING!!
The only thing I can think of that I haven't been satisfied with is their cheaper extracts. Not worth it, there was just something a little weird about it. But I wasn't too surprised by that.
Other than that, they've been great to order from and have good quality.
So the columns are used w/ the plating system & the tubes are used w/ just plain plates? http://www.cakedeco.com/cgi-bin/webc.cgi/st_main.html?p_catid=266&page=3&sid=8Q8COq2CoM0fBK9-28109358293.5b . Do the columns lock into the plate system & the tubes used like dowels?
I'll be using Christmas money soon when I can decide what to get besides my Chefmaster colors!
I hope I'm understanding your questions right; No, they are not used together, and the columns and tubes both lock into the plates the same way. The columns leave a height above the cake where as the tubes will sit flush with the cake (like dowels). You only need one or the other per plate. 4 legs per plate, nothing more. I only mentioned using them as dowels for when I run out of the plastic plates, they're still very useful.
I don't have any of P&H pans, but I used to order from them exclusively. They're a great company in that they don't throw any surprises at you. You get exactly what you see, and they have awesome customer service reps.
Thanks for the clarification. Tubes are what I'm wanting.
